After the second consecutive victory at Roazhon Park won against AJ Auxerre (5-0), the Bretons confirm their great offensive power on their land. In 2022, Stade Rennais is the best attack in the elite at home.
The Rennes season seems definitively launched. After having disposed of Brest at home before drawing a draw at Troyes and a victory at Lanarca in the Europa League, the Bretons have just beaten AJ Auxerre on behalf of the 7th day of the championship at Roazhon Park (5-0). A second major success in a row on home soil which confirms the good form of Bruno Génésio’s men on their home turf. Over the year 2022, the SRFC has the best attack in the elite of French football at home with 41 goals scored, excluding promoted. At the same time, the Rennais are also the best defense with only 8 goals conceded in their den. A major advantage for future receptions that await Martin Terrier’s teammates during the next Ligue 1 matches, but also those in Europe. This Thursday, the reds and blacks receive Fenerbahçe for the second day of the Europa League before closing the first part of the group stage against Dynamo kyiv in Brittany. Two opportunities in quick succession to potentially take 6 important points in the race for the round of 16.
Amine Gouiri finds his way back to the nets
It is also one of the great satisfactions on the Rennes side. While many thought the Gouiri-Laborde exchange between Nice and Rennes much more favorable to the Aiglons, the 22-year-old Franco-Algerian midfielder responds to his detractors. After more than 8 months without league goals, Amine Gouiri has just found the net against Auxerre for the first time since early January against FC Metz. A real deliverance for the young player who seemed to have lost confidence in his game and his finishing after long months of remaining silent. A boon for Stade Rennais who were looking for a new striker to support Martin Terrier, author of a last XXL season and already triple scorer since the start of the new 2022/2023 financial year. It remains to be seen whether the ex-Nice will confirm with his new club during the next meetings and prove himself on the European scene.
